The 2015 Year in Review Survey

Posted by Emily Baillieul on Aug 5, 2015 11:27:22 AM

We’ve just launched our annual Year in Review Survey. Last year we were able to gather thousands of survey responses from medical students that provided insights into the fascinating lifestyles of medical school students. This year, we hope to do more, learning about life for both medical students and recent medical school graduates: From the ways you manage your time to the study resources you use, we will extrapolate interesting findings from the survey and publish summary statistics later this summer.

Here are some visualizations of the interesting results from last year:


As a participant, we'll send you a copy of the results in September and set you with up with a free month of Firecracker (if you want one). We will also be making a donation to patients on for each response, beginning with Esther, a 3 year old girl in Kenya who needs corrective surgery.

Your participation in this 10 minute survey will contribute to insights into how medical students and doctors are living and working now.  The more surveys we receive, the more significant our findings will be for you and other medical students, so tell your friends, tell your classmates.

P.S. The first five schools to submit 25 survey responses will receive a Firecracker swag package containing t-shirts, water bottles and more!

Topics: For Fun, Medical Education, Life Outside Medicine
